FDA Medical Device Laboratory: Biomedical, Mechanical or Chemical Engineer Wanted for Polymer Studies

In our lab we study hydrogel ("goopy") materials which we manipulate at the microliter scale. This involves fine motor setups linked to optical data acquisition and analysis systems, as well as some basic wet and vapor-phase chemistry.

Qualifications: We seek an MS- or a PhD- level biomedical, mechanical, chemical or other engineer with a talent for adapting small fine motorized setups linked to optical data acquisition systems and an interest in biological, medically used, or other soft polymers. Candidate must be extremely organized, programming- and software-literate, and have excellent communication skills. Fine motor dexterity is important; you would be making and manipulating small amounts of delicate materials, as well as creating model interfaces. Training will be provided as necessary; candidates who can ramp up quickly and work independently are strongly preferred. This is a hands-on position.

This is not an academic or GS position; it is an ORISE Fellowship (1-year renewable) with the FDA's Center for Devices and Radiological Health Office of Science and Engineering laboratories (OSEL). We are located in Silver Spring, MD, just outside of Washington DC.

Deadline: 10 February 2011. US Citizenship not a requirement, but we do not sponsor work visas.

How to Apply:
We are currently accepting applications. To apply please send your CV to the following two addresses:

Katherine Vorvolakos, Ph.D.
FDA-OSEL Division of Chemistry and Material Science
